Abstract:

The total of corrosion at Army facilities is a significant percentage of maintenance and repair budgets. Corrosion in underground gas piping is particularly costly because pipe damage is difficult to determine or assess until a leak occurs. Cost effective maintenance of underground gas piping and other structures requires that cathodic protection CP systems operate properly and that some measure of current and projected pipe condition be available. To meet this requirement, data on CP systems must be constantly monitored, and CP faults indicated by the data must be correctly recognized and interpreted. The CP Diagnostic computer program helps the recordkeeping, analysis, and maintenance requirement of sacrificial and impressed current cathodic protection systems. CP diagnostic is a data base management program consisting of two microcomputer systems Sacrificial CP Diagnostic and Impressed Current CP diagnostic. The Users Manual gives an overview of the capabilities of CP diagnostic, and step-by-step instructions for its installation and use.
